Quote from: YNOT on April 25, 2011, 08:10:21 AM@RealCool DaddioThe Smiths and Morrissey's solo work are awesome. Sometimes almost too nostalgic for me to listen too. I could start ranting about the crap the kids listen to these days but... I won't. I must be getting old.
Quote from: RealCool Daddio on April 24, 2011, 10:21:45 PMBest..Band..Ever! Don't get me started on the Smith's, becasue the RealCool Daddio will start to sound like a Justin Bieber fan. And this is from a guy who thinks's the Stone's Exile on Main St. is the best album ever. But really - best band ever.
Quote from: Eddie Coyle on April 25, 2011, 02:52:44 PM Being born when I was(1975) I was too young to really appreciate the Smiths in their 1984-1987 prime. That coupled with the knee-jerk homophobia of my jejune youth, I was dismissive of them...however as I got older, I began give them more of a chance, and with time that grew into my current belief that they were probably the best band to emerge in the 1980's.
Quote from: RealCool Daddio on April 25, 2011, 02:21:21 PMThe Smiths. No idea what I was rambling about Exile for. Gotta stop posting when I am effed up...

Quote from: rkowna on April 25, 2011, 07:14:18 PMDoesn't matter when you were born, I guess, my daughter is 11 and just dropped "Meat is Murder", "The Queen is Dead", and "Strangeways" on her ipod and she was impressed.Thinking back it was a best of times, worst of times era for music. There was new music, U2, REM, to name a few. Then there was the crowd waiting for "The Who" to reunite and make another albun similar to "Whos Next", alot of people wearing Doors shirts insisting Morrison wasn;t dead, you get the picture.Then came The Smiths. From the time I heard "What Difference Does it Make" I was on board. "Last Night I Dreamt Somebody Loved Me", "Cemetry Gates" and "There is a Light" are truly classics.
Quote from: b_dubb on April 25, 2011, 09:15:57 PMabout the Smiths being the best band. they were a great band. great talent. but not the best band. imho
Quote from: Dark Side Of The Moon on April 25, 2011, 09:24:09 PMThe Smiths, the best band? Yuck, how about Boston, Scorpions, Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake, or Deep Purple? I'll even give you Joan Jet and the Blackhearts!

Quote from: Usagi on April 25, 2011, 09:51:55 PMMy personal favorite Smiths song:The Smiths - Girlfriend In A Coma (Official Promo Video)My husband and I have such widely different tastes in music. He prefers Industrial (the real deal stuff), metal, etc. Pete Seeger is my favorite singer... so you can see that there is some clashing.However, we have a number "middle-ground" groups we can listen to on road trips and with the kid. 80's and 90's stuff mostly. Sisters of Mercy, The Cure, and definitely The Smiths.

Quote from: Usagi on April 25, 2011, 10:10:19 PMI saw Sisters of Mercy just last year (or was it the year before?).

Quote from: RealCool Daddio on April 25, 2011, 10:16:27 PMI had no idea they were still touring. The show I was talking about was almost twenty years ago. On another note, if things don't work out with the RealSexy Wifey and Mr. Usagi, I'm heading for Seattle. We can get some Pho, and ...
